Statement by Cardinal Cupich
On August 17, Cardinal Blase J. Cupich released a letter to the people of the Archdiocese of Chicago in response to the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report. The report detailed the abuse scandal in the Catholic Church over seven decades and the failure of those in positions of power to protect the safety of our youth.
